Additional Notes

Complaint: On February 21,2014 Home Energy filled their 100 Gallon propane tank at ** **** **** *** ****** ***** ** due to their faulty pressure regulator allowing the entire contents of the tank to escape into the atmosphere. The tank had been filled in October 2013 and approximately 5% of the tank consumed prior to the leak. Home energy billed me for the full cost of the lost propane even thou the cause was their faulty regulator. I have contacted their office several times, but they will not return my calls. They charged my credit card without authorization.

Desired Settlement: Home energy has three options: 1 - Refund the amount charged on my credit card and install a new pressure regulator - quickly. 2 - Install a new pressure regulator and provide me a no-cost proof of ownership of the tank and regulator. 3 - Remove the tank from my property at my convenience and immediately refund the amount charged to my credit card.

Business Response: Customer called to say that the tank was low at his camp.  He wanted it filled.  We responded quickly and filled the tank.  Driver found a defective regulator.  We had his c. card on file, authorized to use after each delivery.  The ticket was posted and card run before office was informed, re: regulator.  We had issued him a full credit before receiving the first notice from BBB of the complaint.  His complaint is unreasonable.  He said he'd call the BBB back but he has not.  We would have sent a technician there to replace the regulator but he refused because he has no need for the gas service at this time. 

Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:
I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ******** and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me.  However, Home Energy only refunded the propane cost after being told I had filed this complaint. The company owner never would speak to me directly. 
***** *******

Business Response:

Hello ***** 
To clarify: 
1) There is difficulty responding on your website.  Since I don’t plan to make a practice of it, I guess I don’t need to know more! 
2) Mr. ****** rec’d a credit the day before I heard from BBB.  Sorry he thinks there was some ulterior motive.  Please inform him we are happy to pick-up the tank anytime. 
Best Regards,
